What We Believe

 STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

The Ministry accepts the Scriptures as the revealed Will of God, the all sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, adopts these Statements of Fundamental Truths and Doctrine.

THE SCRIPTURE INSPIRED - The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. (II Timothy 3:15-17, I Peter 1:23-25, Hebrews 4:12)

THE ONE TRUE GODHEAD -  The triune Godhead (trio in power) is comprised of three (3) separate and distinct personalities, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed, and function as one entity (one that exists). (I John 5:7)

MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION - Man was created good and upright, for God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." (Genesis 1:26)

But man, by voluntary transgression, fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. (Romans 5:12-21)

THE SALVATION OF MAN -

"The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart: that is, the word of faith which we preach, that if you confess with your mouth, the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. (Romans 10:8-9)

And this is His commandment that we believe in the name of his son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as He commanded us." (I John 3:23)

WATER BAPTISM - The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures by all who have really repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Acts 2:38-39; 10:47-48, Romans 6:4)

THE LORD'S SUPPER - "And when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood, Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.' Let a man examine himself and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup." (I Corinthians 11:24-28)

THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER - All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek, the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Ghost and Fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the endowment of the ministry. (Luke 24:49, Acts 1:8)

THE EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT -  The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, (Acts 2:40); and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service. Having the Fruits of the Spirit operating in us. (Gal. 5:22-23)

BLESSED HOPE - Jesus is coming again to gather all his saints to heaven. (I Thess. 4:16-17)

THE LAKE OF FIRE - Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead. The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. This is the second death, the lake of fire. (Rev. 19:2; 20:14-l5)

THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS - The return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His saints from heaven to rule for one thousand years on earth as the scriptures promised. (Rev. 19; 20; 21)
